The Telangana government on Wednesday launched its digital classrooms programme in 3,352 high schools.

Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari, who holds education portfolio, and IT Minister K T Rama Rao formally started the programme here.

On the first day, the scheme covered 3,352 out of the total 5,400 government-run high schools. Under it, students would get to watch teaching of various subjects via Mana TV, an educational channel started by the government.

The digital class initiative is not to remove teachers from the education system but to help them, Srihari said. The initiative will be extended to all schools by the beginning of 2017 academic year, he said.
